19 Year Old Creates BMW iGenius Software
This should be a remarkable achievement for one of the youngest software developers in the United Kingdom. 19 year old, Dmitry Aksenov was the creator of the new software that BMW will use to answer customers’ questions about their latest electric sports cars. Throw anything at this text-based software and it will interpret words, phrases and even slangs from various languages and provide helpful responses.
This is a fantastic piece of technology! Customers send the questions to a specialized code number, 84737 and the system automatically registers key words and produces an excellent answer in quick time. Officially titled as the iGenius, this software will further the work of the BMW Public Relations department beyond office hours.
There are so many concerns and queries shared by car shoppers and unfortunately the PR people may not be around all the time to address them. The artificial intelligence system will therefore fill this gap as an information hub on BMW electric vehicles. Moreover it is a cool promotional tool since customers can retrieve specific information to understand how these cars fit their lifestyles.
Mr. Aksenov shares the support of many UK BMW fans who have already accepted these new eco-friendly vehicles. The new SMS-based service is only available in the United Kingdom at present. However, BMW is confident that it will gain popularity within the next year and more countries across the world will benefit from this mobile service. The intelligent information service has already been tested and the results returned with no errors. It is amazing what the young minds of this world can conceive and develop to enhance new products and services.
